Please help - minikube + kubernetes: unable to access the dashbaord


I am new to kubernetes and I have been experimenting with docker & minkube + kubernetes for a few weeks…

Everything appears to be working properly except the dashboard…These are my investigation but I have no clue how to fix this.

It is an out-of-the-box configuration, even with kubectl proxy with port 8001 don’t work.

Hi @zollen, this forum is for Linkerd, not Kuberenetes. I recommend trying the Kubernetes community slack.
